QUITOL /India/, March 29. /TASS/. Russia’s arms exporter Rosoboronexport plans to set up the licensed production of 100-series Kalashnikov assault rifles in India after preproduction tests are over in the country, deputy director general Sergey Goreslavsky said Tuesday.

"Rosoboronexport is working to organize the licensed production of 100-series Kalashnikov assault rifles here," Goreslavsky said at the Defexpo India-2016 arms show Tuesday, adding that "production models have already been delivered and we will launch licensed production after preproduction tests are over."

In the autumn of 2015 chief executive of the Russian gun maker Kalashnikov Alexey Krivoruchko said the company was in advanced discussions with Indian partners to manufacture certain weapons in the country. "We are looking at initial production of at least 50,000 items per year and a potential scale-up," he said.
